Postgraduate Conference 2019

CIM Postgraduate Conference 2019

With/In Digital

What does it mean to be with/in the digital? Who (and what) participates with/in the digital? What practices, subjectivities, and materialities emerge through participating with/in the digital? What are the modes of participation with/in the digital? What exclusions/inclusions are enacted with/in the digital? How does power flow with/in the digital? What kinds of research do we do with/in the digital?

The With/in Digital conference is organised by postgraduate students from the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) and aims to provide a space to explore different notions of participation and being with/in the digital. We invite contributions from postgraduates or scholars who engage the themes outlined above from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, such as media studies, aesthetics, art, cultural studies, design, political science, computer science, machine learning, big data, business studies, sociology, or anthropology.

With/in Digital welcomes everyone on 27th June.

Invited keynote speakers: David Garcia and Christian Nold.
